  • For Me, It’s the Best Rivalry in Sports (01/11/16) - by Ric Albano Today is an anniversary. 18 years ago today, on January 11, 1998, I attended the greatest live sports event of my life. The Denver Broncos and Pittsburgh Steelers met for the AFC Championship at Three Rivers Stadium. In the crowd that day were about 58,742 Steeler fans and exactly three Bronco fans(...)
  • In Defense of Odell Beckham Jr. (12/22/15) - by J.D. Cook NOTE: This article is a special blend of Giants Blog and Tuesday Morning Tailback by J.D. Cook. It comes at an opportune time, during the week of the fifth anniversary of the very first Tuesday Morning Tailback in 2010. Football is a physical sport. The goal is to literally pound your opponent(...)
  • More of the Same? (09/14/15) - by J.D.Cook It’s been a rough couple of years since the Giants were last in the Superbowl. First we failed to qualify for the playoffs with a winning record of 9-7 in 2012. Then we had our first losing season in eight years in 2013. Finally things looked like they hit rock bottom last year(...)
  • Wild Card: The Biggest Flop of 2015? (04/08/15) - Jason Statham rarely garners any positive press from his typecast roles but no one expected the extent the damage his recent film, Wild Card would leave in its wake. Set in Las Vegas, Wild Card traipses through some of the leading casinos on the Strip and racked up a sizeable $30 million in production costs(...)
  • There’s Always a Bigger Fish (02/03/15) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback I’m going to say something positive here. The NFL has wrapped up the 2014 season and ended exactly where it should be. Now, for the negative part. This place is one of total ambiguity and integrity, held together by various flavors of bubblegum. Now, this may seem like an absurd statement(...)
  • If I Was Commissioner (01/27/15) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Special guest post by J.D. Cook The League seems to be in a constant state of controversy lately. Whether it’s Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson or the recent “deflategate”, we can’t help but think the Tuesday Morning Tailback would be more suited to run the league then those in power at the(...)
  • Kill the Monster! (01/20/15) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback It has long been my habit to criticize coaches who are ultra-conservative in critical situations. During the playoffs two years ago, I wrote the article called, Kneeling Down on the Job, where I stated that nothing is worse than a coach who doesn’t play to win. In that article, I referenced the(...)
  • The NFL is a Wreck (01/06/15) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback I didn’t realize until yesterday just how messed up it is that the NFL has their own media machine. NFL Network, NFL.com, and a massive social media presence usually seems harmless enough in promoting the sport we all love, but on this day we saw where this media can be used(...)
  • Top 9 TV Shows from 2014 (12/31/14) - by Peggy Fay Albano 2014 was a fairly good year for TV shows and I’ve decided to put together a little year-end, Top 9 list of my favorites this year. One omission I’d like to point out is Boardwalk Empire, which unfortunately, I missed during this last final (hence, it didn’t make this list). Still,(...)
  • 14 Things About 2014 (12/30/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback As the 2014 regular season ends and we look forward to the 11 exciting games of the playoffs, Tuesday Morning Tailback presents a list of our highlights from the past season. We did a similar season-ending assessment last year with our 13 Things about 2013, and a few of those items(...)
  • Giants 2014 Season Wrap Up (12/29/14) - by: J.D. Cook There is only so much one person can write about a losing season. I learned this truth last year when I blogged about the Giants entire losing season. It was kept interesting by the fact that although we started poorly, we went on a late season run at the playoffs that came(...)
  • Trimming the Weeds, part 2 (12/23/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback In continuing the theme we started last week, Tuesday Morning Tailback will again look at the thinning out of playoff contenders as we head down the stretch of the 2014 season. After week 16, the Eagles fall to the ground is now complete, as they lost to the lowly Redskins on(...)
  • Trimming the Weeds, part 1 (12/16/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Just a few weeks ago, things looked pretty good for the Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers, San Diego Chargers, Miami Dolphins, and Cleveland Browns. During this season, each of these teams showed flashes of brilliance and have, at times, far exceeded expectations. However, after each have lost multiple consecutive games, playoff(...)
  • Style Points (12/09/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Last night, the Green Bay Packers looked to be well on their way to another hometown slaughter as they led the Atlanta Falcons 31-7 at halftime. However, the Falcons came alive in the second half, scoring 31 points of their own in that half, before barely losing the game 43-37. The(...)
  • Trade Odell Beckham Now! (11/25/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback I noticed today that our fearless leader, J.D. Cook, has failed to post a Giants Blog this week. Has he finally given up on Big Blue for the 2014 season? Assuming so, I guess this post serves a dual purpose this week. Anyway, late on Sunday night, Cook posted this on(...)
  • Veteran’s Day (11/11/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Today we celebrate Veteran’s Day across the country and the NFL has dedicated the month of November as a “Salute to Service”. This is a noble cause and much less flamboyant than the “wear pink in October” campaign. In the spirit of this holiday, we’ll do this short tribute to some(...)
  • Seahawks Rain on Giants (11/09/14) - by J.D. Cook The Seahawks looked terrible in the rain this week. Russell Wilson couldn’t complete a pass and their running backs were fumbling up and down the field. So all I have to say is the Giants lost to this terrible team to illustrate just how bad they are playing this year. The Positives(...)
  • Pink Floyd The Wall (11/09/14) - by Ric Albano Today we celebrate the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall with a Classic Movie Review of the 1982 motion picture Pink Floyd The Wall. Today’s article is done in conjunction with The River of Rock, and is published in along with an album review of The Wall 1979 album(...)
  • Brutal Truths (11/04/14) - by J.D. Cook, guest “Tailback” I like to think of the Tuesday Morning Tailback as a feature that says the things that sports journalists cannot. On Big Blue Bullfrog, we aren’t bound by political correctness, donations or trends! We just tell it like it is. So here are some brutal truths and opinions that you(...)
  • Those Scrappy, World-Champion Giants (11/04/14) - by Ric Albano Over the past seven years, we have had the privilege of watching five incredible championship runs by the Giants. OK, these championships were split between two distinctive Giants on two separate coasts and playing two distinctive sports, with the latest being the San Francisco Giants’ third World Series victory in five years.(...)
  • Goodfellas (10/27/14) - by Jake Albano Classic Movie Review for October 2014 From an early age we all aspire to be something, whether that be an athlete or a famous movie star. For Henry Hill, his aspirations laid on being a gangster. Directed by Martin Scorsese, the 1990 crime film Goodfellas has persevered as a film classic due(...)
  • The Map of America (10/21/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Recently, Facebook released a map of the USA which, county-by-county outlined the most popular local team. This was based on the cross referencing of an official teams “likes” and the location of the person who executed the “like”. While this map pretty much unfolds geographically, there is some interesting data points(...)
  • The Walking Dead S5E2 (10/20/14) - by: Oliver Layco Last week on The Walking Dead Rick and the gang were able to escape Terminus while burning it down to the ground. This week was a fairly simple episode of the group patching things up and figuring out their next move. Again, I’m not sure which direction my writing will take me(...)
  • Sue Jerry Jones (10/19/14) - by J.D. Cook I’ve seen this game before. That’s why I started writing this in the 3rd quarter. Once Larry Donnell fumbled and Dallas turned it into a touchdown it was clear this game was over. It’s really frustrating that the Giants keep falling into the same narrative stretching back to last year at least.(...)
  • New York Comic Con 2014 (10/16/14) - by J.D. Cook This article can now be found at it’s new home on Comics Movies Games.com. But check out this gallery of photos from the event while you’re here. Past Comic Book Commentaries Happy One Year Anniversary Susquehanna Comics Fear Agent: Remender’s Magnum Opus Zero Year Ends Marvel’s Recent Diversification X-Men: Days of Future(...)
  • Zero Offense (10/15/14) - by: J. D. Cook It’s taken me a few days to fully digest Sunday night’s abysmal loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The lack of scoring coupled with the loss of Victor Cruz is enough to send any fan into a minor writing coma. Thankfully I’ve recovered…but things still look bleak. The Positives We’ve already gotten(...)
  • The Walking Dead S5E1 (10/13/14) - by: Oliver Layco The Walking Dead has returned! And Rick and the gang look to get some vengeance on the Terminus crew. Not sure how this is gonna turn out while I’m writing so, *SPOILERS AHEAD!*   Okay so last we saw Rick (Andrew Lincoln), Glenn (Steven Yeun), Michonne (Danai Gurira), and the gang were(...)
  • Giants Kirk those Fal-KHANS (10/05/14) - by J.D. Cook Some consistency is a nice thing! After two straight wins we’ve now won 3 games and are heading into a huge division clash with the Philadelphia Eagles. Division match ups are hard to predict but the Eagles are the current top dogs and how we play against them will be a measure(...)
  • Giants Kick Ass (09/26/14) - by: J.D. Cook It’s nice to be right but sometimes it’s better to be wrong. I predicted this week’s game against the Redskins would be the Giants first victory of the season. Well I was wrong. The victory was the Giants second and brought their record to two wins and two losses. The Positives Everything?(...)
  • Wake Me Up When September Ends (09/23/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback There will be no Tuesday Morning Tailback next week to make way for the official launch of The River of Rock, a worldwide music and entertainment network to which Big Blue Bullfrog will be affiliated. Further, it is hard to consider this upcoming week a real football week anyway, as six(...)
  • Gotham Debut is Suprisingly Good (09/22/14) - by: J.D. Cook I must admit I was very skeptical of whether a pre-Batman Gotham based T.V. series would work. On the surface I just didn’t feel like the characters would work without Batman at the center. That said I decided to sit through the pilot because I didn’t want to write something off without(...)
  • 1st Giant Win (09/21/14) - by: J.D. Cook Last week I sang the praises of the New York Giants for their respectable loss to the Arizona Cardinals. My argument was simple; the loss to the Cardinals could be built on. The New York Giants did just that trouncing the Houston Texans handily this week. I’m almost ashamed to say I(...)
  • Super Smash Bros. 3DS Preview (09/19/14) - by Oliver Layco The time is almost upon us when we can take the beloved Super Smash Bros. franchise on the road with us. This will be the games first iteration on their 3DS system, and the demo just became public today. At its core, the game is everything we’ve come to love ever since(...)
  • There’s a Flag On the Play (09/16/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback I wish I could say week two was filled with exciting football, but I cannot. The week of tortured hang-wringing off the field seemed to bleed through to the actual gridiron, especially when it came to the “flag happy” officials and the mounds of annoying, marginal penalties. It started with the(...)
  • Don’t Panic (09/14/14) - by: J.D. Cook It was a loss but it was a respectable and well fought loss. There is a big difference between last week’s blowout loss to the Lions and this week’s close loss to the Cardinals. Obviously a loss is a loss at the end of the day but I have confidence we can(...)
  • Happy One Year Anniversary Susquehanna Comics (09/11/14) - by: J. D. Cook Yesterday  Susquehanna Comics, located in Harrisburg Pennsylvania, turned one year old! Which means one year ago today I walked in for the first time through a happy mistake while waiting to take a test for a job. Not too long after I moved within driving distance and then walking distance. The(...)
  • Drunk on Football (09/09/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback There was so much football this past weekend that I felt like I was intoxicated on football at times. Today I’ll talk about both the NFL and college football as all the meaningful contests seemed to arrive like a tornado. I do really enjoy the blitz of featured games over the(...)
  • Light Blue Lions Eat Blue Giants (09/08/14) - by: J.D. Cook Well another season has started for Big Blue but the first game went to the team dressed in Light Blue. I am speaking of the Detroit Lions, who avenged their late season loss to Big Blue last year.  The Giants were large underdogs in this game but I had hope for our(...)
  • When 8 Is Greater Than 606 (09/02/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Before this new NFL season begins, I feel the need to try to clear the air on the massacre that happened in New Jersey last February. As the writer of this NFL column for the past four years, I try to look at things as coldly and impartially as possible. However,(...)
  • Aliens (with Beer) (08/17/14) - by J.D. Cook It’s been ages since I’ve reviewed a live event but I just felt compelled to spread the word about my recent trip to a local theater. It’s called the Midtown Cinema and it’s located on Riley Street in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. As part of downtown Harrisburg’s 3rd in the Burg festival the theater(...)

  • Agents of Shield: Season Wrap Up (06/14/14) - by: J.D. Cook The final two episodes of Agents of Shield really put a great cap on what was a great show for the most part. Yes it started a bit slow but as I said back then. It had to develop its characters! Would Deathlok mean as much to us as viewers if we(...)
  • Perspective on Belief (06/05/14) - by Victoria Volpe The concept of reincarnation is relatively familiar. It is the idea that our tangible existences perish but our souls find new life. Biologically, this is pretty sound (considering your freshman intro to bio. class most likely did not cover the abstraction that is the human soul). What I always found particularly interesting(...)
  • The Entity Outside Mr. Baker’s Window (06/01/14) - by: J.D. Cook     photo by: Jacob Albano The team of investigators stood around Mr. Baker’s bed ready for anything. Each one had their own reasons for dedicating themselves to this line of work. Doug knew he had seen a demon in a blue cape with yellow skin whilst attending summer camp as a young man.(...)
  • Snap Shots of my Dog’s Life (05/29/14) - by J.D. Cook Dozer was not man’s best friend He was my best friend. I picked him out the day after he was born because, out of his litter, he was the adventurous one who climbed all over me while I sat down with them. He was the offspring of two pure bred huskies making(...)

  • Agents of Shield: Nothing Personal (04/30/14) - by J.D. Cook This Article has been infiltrated by SPOILERS compliments of HYDRA! Well Agents of Shield hasn’t taken its foot off the gas yet! This week’s episode was probably Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) best showing as a character. She resourcefully trapped and played Ward (Brett Dalton) successfully escaping from him…only to be caught by Deathlok(...)
  • Agents of Shield: The Only Light in the Darkness (04/23/14) - by: J.D. Cook Agent’s of Surprises! Ok well maybe the episode didn’t have that many twists and turns but it was full of narrative driven goodness! We got to see the Cellist (Amy Aker) Coulson (Clark Gregg) mentioned way back in the Avengers! Doesn’t that seem like a long time ago now? Time sure is full(...)
  • I Run for Boston (04/21/14) - by: Oliver Layco Running is something the majority of people greet with a grunt or sigh. Those who run do so for any number of reasons. Personally, running is a release for me; it’s also something I know everyone can’t do. I suppose can’t is the wrong word; rather, running is something they won’t do.(...)
  • The End of a Nightmare (04/18/14) - by: Oliver Layco After a long and grueling season, the nightmare is finally over. In a season that saw a record high of 51 points in a quarter and a record low in a 48 point loss, the Los Angeles Lakers have finished with the worst record in franchise history at 27-55. Even before the(...)
  • Agents of Shield: Providence (04/14/14) - by: J.D. Cook Agents of Shield is gaining speed as it heads to it’s climax and we finally know who that pesky Clairvoyant is! Turns out he was none other than Bill Paxton’s Hydra turncoat Agent Garrett. I have to say I was just as disappointed as the Girl with the Flower Dress, Raina (Ruth(...)
  • Agents of Shield: Turn, Turn, Turn (04/09/14) - by J.D. Cook I reallyyy feel bad for those people who lost interest in Agents of Shield when it was still developing. All of the character building and villain creation has finally led us to the Agents of Shield we all signed up for. As I have said countless times before, trust in Joss Whedon!(...)
  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier (04/05/14) - by J.D. Cook The second Captain America is an astounding improvement over the first entry. The first film had glimmers of greatness before floundering in its last act. This film keeps the pedal on the gas through the entire ride and just gets better until its climatic end. It’s also got an insightful commentary hidden(...)
  • Agents of Shield: End of the Begining (04/02/14) - by J.D. Cook Considering Captain America: The Winter Soldier comes out this Friday it is not surprising at all that connections abound between it and Agents of Shield. I have a feeling these episodes will be a lot more tied to this film then they were to Thor: The Dark World. The plot of Cap(...)
  • Huge Revelation for Avengers: Age of Ultron (03/18/14) - by J.D. Cook Alright so there was no new episode of Agents of Shield but there was one HUGE reveal for Avengers: Age of Ultron and apparently a lot of people missed it. Spoilers Below! It’s the Hulkbuster Armor! (pictured above) This is obviously the armor Iron Man dons when he wants to battle the(...)
  • Clacc Tape (03/17/14) - by: Oliver Layco About a year ago, I was on my way to graduation from St. John’s when a fellow classmate released his first mixtape. Gifted came around at a time when I needed it so it’s natural that I hold it to a higher pedestal than what may come out next from the up(...)
  • The Walking Dead: Show VS Comic (03/12/14) - by J.D. Cook I have been meaning to write an article about the Walking Dead in some form or another for ages now. I just never seemed to find the time but thankfully this week I was in need of a subject for my newest Comic Book Commentary and just finished Compendium Two of the(...)
  • Agents of Shield: Yes Men (03/11/14) - by J.D. Cook I have said it before but I am saying it again, Agents of Shield has definitely hit it’s stride. I loved last week’s race to save Skye’s (Chloe Bennet) life but this episode upped the ante by bringing down an Asgardian. Two Asgardian’s actually! First came the evil Lorelei (Elena Satine), with the power(...)
  • The Rise of the Con (03/10/14) - by: Oliver Layco Ahhh, the sweet sweet smell of convention halls. There’s a certain air about attending comic conventions that have well expanded beyond the realm of comics; or it could be the heated masses of thousands of bodies in a confined space. Either way, conventions are special yet they still retain a sense of(...)
  • The First Issue of Magneto is Magnetic (03/08/14) - by J.D. Cook This week my Comic Book Commentary is magnetized to a brand new series that started this past Wednesday. I am of course talking about Magneto by Cullen Bunn. The first issue of the series drew my attention for a number of reasons but two were bigger than the others. The first was(...)
  • Agents of Shield: T.A.H.I.T.I. (03/06/14) - by J.D. Cook Sometimes an actor can just step on a set and elevate an entire show. That’s pretty much how I felt when Bill Paxton showed up in Agents of Shield this week. It was almost like Bill Paxton wasn’t even present and he just became his tough as nails character. Maybe one of(...)
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen (02/28/14) - by: Oliver Layco The Los Angeles Lakers are often seen as either the best or second best franchise in professional basketball; from my point of view, they are the best. They have the best winning percentage of all time (.620), the most playoff appearances (59), and the second most championships in league history (16); second(...)
  • The History of the Guardians of the Galaxy (02/27/14) - by J.D. Cook James Gunn Favorited our article, so you know it’s good! @Guardians @JamesGunn @Marvel Did this short write up on the history of the Guardians of the Galaxy! http://t.co/wTRYZMsYCE — Big Blue Bullfrog (@BigBlueBullfrog) February 28, 2014 Long ago back when I was still in college a good friend of mine told me(...)

  • Dies Irae (02/16/14) - by J.D. Cook 1 The water was calm, the sky was grayish white, and Paul was tired. Weather like this always made him groggy. He slouched down on the bench of the Staten Island Ferry with exhaustion. The benches were surprisingly comfortable, in spite of carrying what looked like a painful wood panel design in(...)
  • The Last of Us: Left Behind (02/15/14) - by: Oliver Layco The Last of Us was probably the best game that I have played on the PS3. With the arrival of Left Behind, players would get to experience the back story of Ellie (Ashley Johnson) before she met up with Joel. This was referenced in the main game, and it’s nice to see(...)
  • Mass Effect Comics: A Rundown (02/13/14) - by J.D. Cook I am a huge Mass Effect fan. I have been since I first rented the game from Blockbuster way back in 2007. I was immediately drawn into the game because it was extremely similar to a story I had come up with a few months before. Except that this game took my(...)
  • One Nation : Old Druids (02/11/14) - By Ra’Chaun Rogers Created: Jason Reeves & John Ruben Milton  Writer: Alverne Ball & Jason Reeves Art: Ari Syahrazad There are 34 attributes believed to be possessed by God, each of these attributes is represented by a letter that spells out the full name of God. This is the tale told in One Nation: Old(...)

  • Batman Beats the Marvel Universe (02/10/14) - by J.D. Cook Alright so maybe the title isn’t exactly accurate. According to numbers released byDiamond Comic Distributors, Inc. last Friday, Batman #27 by Scott Snyder with art by Greg Capullo was the top selling single comic book issue for the month of January. As a big fan of Snyder and Capullo’s run on the(...)

  • Astonishing X-Men Got It Right (02/06/14) - by J.D. Cook While going through my comics today, in preparation for an upcoming move, I got to lovingly re-examine my favorite comic arc of all time, Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men. It got me thinking of what made the series so good when compared to the contemporary X-Men comics of today and I came up(...)
  • Agents of Shield: T.R.A.C.K.S. (02/04/14) - by J.D. Cook I have been a fairly staunch defender of Agents of Shield in its first season. Many of my friends have already abandoned ship but I stayed on deck as it took a hiatus, returned for two episodes, and then went on another hiatus. I  even stood by it through the episodes where(...)
  • Stuper Bowl XLVIII (02/04/14) - by J.D. Cook Well Superbowl Sunday came and went in anti-climactic fashion. Anyone who watched the game knows just how one sided and boring the game was for football fans. In the modern era of football where we have 2 weeks of build up for the Super Bowl it really is quite a let down(...)
  • The Dark Knight Falls to Batman Begins (01/30/14) - by J.D. Cook Batman Begins is unequivocally better than the Dark Knight or the Dark Knight Rises. There after many years of secretly holding this view it is finally out for the entire world to loathe. Don’t worry though; I shall explain. First I will start by eliminating the 3rd film from contention for the(...)
  • That Pro Bowl Sucked (01/27/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback OK, full disclosure. I didn’t really watch the Pro Bowl. At least no more than five minutes of it. But within those five minutes I must have heard Chris Collinsworth spout three different times how this was the “best Pro Bowl he’s seen in years”. And this was still in the(...)

The categories range from Top(...)
  • Brave New Worlds Comics (01/23/14) - by J.D. Cook Alright Readers, the moment you have all been waiting for is here at last, the number 1 comic store in Eastern Pennsylvania! Without further ado the winner is…Brave New Worlds in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Not only is it named after the fantastic book by Aldous Huxley but unlike the last two comic stores(...)
  • Writer Up: Writers of Color and Comics (01/22/14) - by Ra’Chaun Rogers Disclaimer I would like to start by saying I bear no ill will toward any independent creators, black or otherwise. Along the course of this article, some may assume I have the ‘crabs in a barrel’ mentality, but that is the furthest thing from the truth. My only wish is to see(...)
  • Class vs. Ass (01/21/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback “That’s just Richard being Richard”, replied Seahawks coach Pete Carroll on Monday when asked about cornerback Richard Sherman’s late-game and post-game antics. Here, Sherman called out 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree as “sorry” and “mediocre” all while butchering the English language with chants like, “I the best”, and, “We the best”. Whether(...)
  • Cosmic Comics (01/16/14) - by J.D. Cook Cosmic Comics is the 2nd best comic book store in all of Eastern Pennsylvania. Although much like the 3rd best comic store on this list, Susquehanna Comics, it’s really located more in lower Central Pennsylvania. This store has a huge amount of back issues as well as a large number of amazing(...)
  • Agents of Shield: Seeds (01/15/14) - by J.D. Cook Well luckily I found a way to watch last week’s episode of Agents of Shield ‘The Magical Place’ before this week’s premiere because it was pretty awesome. At first I didn’t think the idea of spending an episode at S.H.I.E.L.D. Academy would be interesting in the slightest but I was pleasantly surprised.(...)
  • Lego: The Lord of the Rings (01/14/14) - by: Oliver Layco The Lego series of video games has never appealed to me before. Whether it was the simple rehashing of stories we’ve heard countless times before or the lack of voice acting that did it in for me confuses me. I mean all Nintendo titles have the same story and no voices yet(...)
  • The West Is the Best (01/14/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback It is kind of impressive how solid the western divisions of both conferences have been this season. Long overlooked due to a east-coast-infested media bias, teams from the west have grown to dominate the National Football League, with both divisions rapidly rising from mediocrity in just a few short years. If(...)
  • Susquehanna Comics (01/09/14) - by J.D. Cook Nestled between the various fine eateries and state offices of Strawberry Square in downtown Harrisburg you can find a little store with a singular purpose. The selling of those fabled magazines we call comic books. I was in Strawberry Square one day for a completely separate purpose when I first spotted the(...)
  • Agents of Shield: The Magical Place (01/08/14) - by J.D. Cook Unfortunately due to dinner engagements and a trip to Manhattan  I was unable to see the new episode of Agents of Shield during its regular air time at 8:00 P.M. Eastern Time. Now usually this is not a very big problem as the show has been free to watch on both ABC.com(...)
  • American Hustle (01/08/14) - by: Oliver Layco This article can be found at it’s new home on www.comicsmoviesgames.com Other Nutshell Movie Reviews 09/21/13 – Insidious: Chapter 2 08/20/13 – Hot Fuzz 08/19/13 – Shaun of the Dead 08/18/13 – Scott Pilgrim Vs the World 08/17/13 – Paul Article from Around the Web ZergNet
  • Luck Does Not Suck (01/07/14) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback When a fumbled handoff near the goal line took a fortuitous bounce into Andrew Luck’s hands and he lunged forward for a touchdown, you just knew this was going to be one of those classic moments. It kind of reminded me of John Elway’s famous propeller flip for a first down(...)
  • Golden Unicorn Comics (01/02/14) - by J.D. Cook The 4th best Comic Book store in Eastern Pennsylvania is called Golden Unicorn Comics and much like its namesake it is an elusive mystery. I once lost this store for six months or more. It just up and ran away from the location it had been in for most of my life.(...)
  • Late 2013 Archives (12/31/13) - by Big Blue Bullfrog Older Posts       Newer Posts
  • 13 Things About 2013 (12/31/13) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback As the regular season ends and we anticipate the 11 elimination games of the playoffs, Tuesday Morning Tailback has come up with a list of observations from the 2013 season. Some of these you may find obvious, some profound, and some just plain wacky. 1. The Denver Broncos Have the Greatest(...)
  • Ugly Season Ends in Beautiful Victory (12/29/13) - by J.D. Cook Final Score: NY Giants 20 Washington Redskins 6 When football is played in ugly, nasty, horrible weather it is nothing short of beautiful! My favorite foul weather to see a football game take place in is snow. Since the temperature today was a bit too high I got to watch a dreary cold(...)
  • Happy ‘Comic Book’ Holidays (12/26/13) - by J.D. Cook Today’s Comic Book Commentary will unfortunately be a bit short due to the Holidays but I do have an announcement for the coming weeks! I will be doing a countdown of the Top 5 Comic Book Stores in Pennsylvania. I may also follow that up with a countdown of the 5 best(...)
  • NFL Dead Zone (12/24/13) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback NFL Red Zone is one of the best ideas to come around in recent years. Debuting in 2009, this premium channel offers live, commercial-free NFL coverage on Sunday afternoons during the regular season. The mission of the channel is in its name – to display live coverage of the most crucial(...)
  • Christmas in Detroit (12/22/13) - by J.D. Cook Final Score: NY Giants 23 Detroit Lions 20 23-20 is a historic score for the New York Giants. That was the very score they defeated the Green Bay Packers by in the 2007 N.F.C. Championship Game. It was also the score they defeated the Philadelphia Eagles by when I saw them live(...)
  • Eon Viant (12/19/13) - by J.D. Cook The best part about reviewing comic books is that people occasionally send me stuff I get REALLY excited about. This was the case with Eon Viant.  The story follows a crack team of soldiers before focusing in on the main character Gabriel Honor. He is a man with a nearly unlimited amount(...)
  • Forging His Fate through Failures (12/18/13) - by Jeff Thomas How poker adds fuel to Paul Pierce’s competitive fire Failures, disappointments, upsets: these are just some of the bitter experiences a poker player endures on a daily basis. Like many of their more physically-gifted counterparts in major US sports like basketball and football, these card gamers also go through the process of(...)
  • How to Get in the Christmas Spirit (12/18/13) - by J.D. Cook Every year I wait around expecting to suddenly be hit with ‘all that good will towards men’ and ‘holiday magic’ that is so famous in Christmas movies. Unfortunately I’ve learned, as countless other children becoming adults before me have, that getting into the Christmas Spirit is much harder as you get older.(...)
  • November’s Champions (12/17/13) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback After their collapse against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys are 0-2 in December and on the edge of another late season collapse. This is nothing new, as the modern era Dallas Cowboys have a history of being anointed champions mid season by a media over-enthusiastic, followed by(...)
  • Time for a Post-Season Purge (12/15/13) - by J.D. Cook Final Score: NY Giants 0 Seattle Seahawks 23 The Giants certainly had a chance to upset the Seattle Seahawks today. Unfortunately the offense did not show up. I think it is time for Kevil Gilbride to go. He’s certainly been a good Offensive Coordinator in his lengthy tenure with the New York(...)
  • Head (12/12/13) - by Peggy Fay Albano In a flashback,  a man took his son hunting for the first time. What were they hunting? Deer? Rabbit? No, actually it was witches. And they got one! In the present day, Fiona visits Marie La Veaux with the head that was left on her doorstep, wanting to make an alliance.(...)
  • Red Branch Publications ‘Cascade’ (12/12/13) - by J.D. Cook I was recently given the delightful task of reviewing Red Branch Publications’ Cascade. It is an old school horror story that involves a Native America curse a young couple and a redneck ex-boyfriend. That’s really just the tip of the iceberg for this story but I do not want to spoil anything(...)
  • Agents of Shield: The Bridge (12/11/13) - by J.D. Cook Agents of Shield has been a very hit or miss television show in its first season. It is somewhat to be expected as the creators are trying to see what works and does not work for the show. So far I’d say there have been three excellent episodes that hit on all(...)
  • Great Football! (12/10/13) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback Just when we marveled about how good football was last week, the football played on December 8th was the most entertaining in memory. Many of these games were played in a heavy snow and followed similar patterns of careful, low-scoring play early and wild, high-scoring play late. Of all these snow(...)
  • Giants SHOCKED by Chargers (12/08/13) - by J.D. Cook Final Score: NY Giants 14 San Diego Chargers 37 Well the Giants game was such a blow out that Fox actually took the game off of my television today. Sad but I was just about to start writing this article anyway so it sort of worked out. This is essentially the literal(...)
  • The Sacred Taking (12/06/13) - by Peggy Fay Albano Queenie, on a quest from Marie Leveau, is approached by a very bad man who intends to do her harm. The tables are turned, however, and she leaves the man lying in the street, “heartless”. Misty Day arrives at the academy frantically seeking help, apparently there’s someone after her. When they(...)
  • Comic Book Catchup (12/05/13) - by J.D. Cook Well it’s been a while since I’ve been able to talk about Comic Books because my local store was sold out of some stuff I wanted and then Thanksgiving rolled around but now I’m back and happy to report I’m all caught up on the titles I follow. D.C. Comics First Scott(...)
  • Good Football (12/03/13) - by Tuesday Morning Tailback This past Thanksgiving weekend offered the best football of the season and one of the better weekends of quality football in memory. This was not just in the NFL, but also the fantastic college games on Saturday, highlighted by Auburn’s incredible win over Alabama in the “iron bowl”. With one second(...)
  • Giants beat Redskins and Dull Commentators (12/02/13) - by J.D. Cook Yesterday the Giants won their second divisional game of the year. Unfortunately thanks to the N.F.L’s asinine scheduling it was virtually a meaningless game. Division games should be spread out with three confrontations between rivals near the start of the season and three near the end. Instead the Giants played Dallas with(...)
